New Elementary School Name – Your Valuable Input is Needed!

As you may know, our new elementary school building is scheduled to open in September 2019 and will be located next to Thomas Jefferson Middle School. Per policy, APS has formed a Naming Committee to recommend the name of the new school. The Naming Committee is now collecting input from the community to help inform the direction of the naming process. 

Please take a few minutes and go to to learn more about the process and get answers to most of your questions.

The Community Input Form is available in English, Spanish, Arabic, Amharic, and Mongolian. We are asking each Patrick Henry Elementary School parent and staff to fill out the appropriate survey. Our timeline is short, so we hope you can do it soon. It should not take more than 5 minutes.
